This show had its' moments...
Five stars for the venue & five stars for the "Mess" which was (as the kids like to say) "sick!".
Nice heavy bass on "Hunting Song" & 'Mission Man".
The last half of the second set is a bit "bipolar" & doesn't really flow....it jumps from a super-high energy party song (I am a Mess) to a slow love song into a celtic-sounding song, back to a rock song, then into a depressing slow song, back to two more rock songs, finally ending with a gospel tune.
One one hand I suppose such a musical stew is what makes RRE so unique, but personally I wish they would have just rocked it out, something along the lines of Buffalo>Mess>Hunting Song>Buddha>Mission Man.
Enjoyed "Soul of a Man" as I had never seen it played live before, but again would have preferred they encored with something with a little more upbeat. Or played a double encore, which would have been A) a nice way to cap off this 3 day Colorado run & B) an appropriate way of giving a little something extra to fans who paid $45 plus fees for this show.
Other than "I am a Mess" nothing too spectacular, a few too many love songs & "filler" songs for my taste.
